Superhero games are often hard games to get right. Everybody wants to play as their favourite character that they’ve read about in comic books or seen on the big screen in cinemas. However, more often than not, it’s very hard to replicate the look and feel of the superhero that the developers are getting you to play as. However, there are often some games that either capture this feel or are just as fun as hell and we’ve decided to track those games down for you here. So here’s our top 10 superhero games ever made
The original Spider-man game that coincided with the release of the Spiderman films back in the mid-2000s was a really good game and that surprised people. It surprised people even more when Spiderman 2 was a REALLY good game. Being considered the best Spiderman game ever made is only fitting to coming out with a movie tie-in to arguably the best Spiderman movie ever made.
Batman: Arkham Asylum
The game that started off arguably the best Superhero series in existence is Batman Arkham Asylum. A game that had you genuinely feel like Batman by sneaking around, using gadgets and engaging in arguably the best hand-to-hand combat in any game ever. This was the game that started off the series and built an incredible foundation for the following titles to play with.
Batman: Arkham City
However, how do you make arguably the best batman game better? You take everything that was great about the original game, improve on it a little bit and then throw Batman into the whole of Arkham island and allow him to roam free. Arkham City is considered one of the best Superhero games of our modern gaming generation and for very good reasons.
Injustice: Gods Among Us
Injustice was one of those games that people thought seemed like an odd idea. However, upon its release a lot of people realised the game came with a fairly solid storyline, genuinely unique feeling characters and a heck of a lot of replayability and therefore, it kept them coming back to this DC-based Superhero fighting game.
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes
LEGO have made a huge career out of making some really good LEGO games based on bigger franchises. Star Wars was a huge success and since we’ve seen equally popular titles from LEGO such as The Hobbit, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter and more. However, for Superhero fans, you MUST try out LEGO Marvel Super Heroes.
LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham
Another great LEGO Superhero game is Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham. If LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is for Marvel then LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham is for DC. Featuring all the big names from the DC Universe, it continues to make Superheroes feel unique from one another and offer up some great gameplay.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2
The films may not quite have reached the quality levels of the original Spiderman films in the mid-2000s but the games weren’t half bad. Both games suffered from a dodgy web-swinging action that had you often awkwardly crashing into walls and finding it hard to navigate. However with a fairly solid story and combat system, it still felt like a good action game.
The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction
What if I told you there was a game in which you could play as The Incredible Hulk, free roam around a city and smash everything in your site? Well, The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction is that exact game and offers up one of the most fun experiences the big green machine has ever produced in a video game.
X-Men Origins: Wolverine
Despite the movie being a big of a let down a character with such potential, the game that tied into the movie was a blast. With some really solid combat, puzzle techniques and a fairly decent set of graphics, it was a game that could easily kill some time. Plus, who hasn’t wanted to play as Wolverine in a game?
Ultimate Marvel v Capcom 3
The last game on our list is a classic and a hit from a long time ago however it still remains as arguably the best fighting game involving Superheroes. The Ultimate Marvel v Capcom series was one much adored by fans as it had you facing the classic Capcom characters against the superheroes of Marvel. The third was considered the best in the series.
